I know it’s been a good while since I’ve posted on here but I am officially back!! Since you last saw me, I am a proud grad of Indiana University (go big red!) AND have been trying to up my blogger involvement now that school is done. With this being said, I have been going to a few different events across the city since coming back and joined a few groups as well like Chicagogrammers & Blogging For Keeps BFFs (both free!!).
The first was the ShopBuzzed event at Lush Wines – Kristi & Chloe pulled it off! The vendors had great clothes and accessories as well as a free wine tasting – how cool is that?! I managed to snag a couple pieces while I was there so you’ll see a post about those soon 😉 The Fab’rik teal top in the next event was one of them – ha! Can’t wait to go to their next one at Rockit Bar in River North on the 16th! The girls were so sweet too and even made sure to ask me for my blog so they could follow me.
The next event was at Paper Source in Lincoln Park. For those who don’t know it, Paper Source is similar to Hallmark but a bit more on trend and they also have other fun things besides cards like bar cart essentials and books. Paper Source was celebrating their collaboration with Packed Party – a party in a box delivery service. The CEO & found of the company, Jordan, was there to help host too. She was so inspiring, it was such a treat to hear her story about how much the company has grown since starting it years ago. We got to have some cupcakes and do a little card decorating to cap off the night.
Last but not least, I had the pleasure of meeting Laura of Bright Beautiful blog at her event in Madewell! She couldn’t be nicer and loved talking with her about her wedding plans, life in Chicago and collaboration over competition in the blogging world. The event was super chic with wine in cans and French macarons to munch on as we shopped.
That’s all for now – got some more posts up my sleeve so stay tuned!
